Very Good But Very Quiet

We pasted this restaurant several times before finally venturing in as it was always very quiet. The night we did go in the place was only about a third full but the service, the ambiance and the food are all worth the visit. Not sure why it was always quiet, maybe as it's part of a 5* hotel an... read more

Beautiful Table Mountain view, incredible staff and unbelievable food. A breakfast buffet that stretches from cereal and yogurt to oysters and sparking wine, via full English and other hot options. If you can't afford to stay at the fine V and A Hotel, at least treat yourself to their breakfast. At just R230 per person (under $20), it is the... More

Excellent menu, great tasting, beautifully presented food, but the best thing is the style and elegance of the staff. They make the experience and food go down so much better. Then there is the view and the warm atmosphere to boot. Not much one can fault.

Great food, location and atmosphere. The V&A waterfront has a number of restaurants that offer very average food; which is a growing trend. OYO is certainly not one of these. Great food and one of the best water side locations in the V&A.

We dined here whilst staying at the hotel (Victoria and Alfred). The food was gorgeous and well presented. The waiting staff are attentive but not too much and nothing is too much trouble. I have no hesitation in recommending Oyo and would go again if I return to Cape Town

Had a simple pastry basket as a brunch - freshly baked and delicious. Great friendly waiter and the location is fantastic alongside the V&A Hotel on the quayside.

We stopped in for dinner on the first evening and had an excellent meal - filet steak & lamb chops. The meats were tasty and cooked to perfection. The sides and sauces were huge portions, made from freshest ingredients and were well cooked and served hot. The service was also very good, being above average. Breakfasts are included and I...

The food is ok, the service is very nice but it is average, eat here just out of convenience if you are staying at the hotel.

It was an absolutely stunning day in Cape Town and it was great to do some people watching from their veranda. Life just passes by and the atmosphere is relaxed. The service was very attentive and fast. The food was from another world and the side dishes was nice healthy portions. The dessert was a generous size and it was... More

I had dinner there in March, 2015 - the whole party had fish. The food was delicious - and the waiter (Mark) was terrific!
